notice debris is realistic – unlike 9-11 where nothing bigger than a telephone was found (because it was a weapon).

Collapsed Florida condo was sinking for decades, researcher says
https://nypost.com/2021/06/24/collapsed-florida-condo-was-sinking-for-decades-researcher/

“The 12-story beachfront condo in Miami-Dade County was built in 1981 — and had been sinking into the ground since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor at Florida International University.”

Concrete has a life-span depending on quality. It’s supposed to be 50 years I was told by someone in construction. However, it depends on the original quality, and I guess environment, stresses-load. Eventually it becomes like powder. The salt air may have an impact. And, it would depend on the original construction too. I don’t know if it has a foundation that could adapt to subsidence. There’s the whole issue of rebar, too, which rusts, corrodes and could have been insufficient. I’m sure it was related to the subsidence, though. The offshore vibration might have been the final straw.

” . . . .some in South Florida raised concerns that a Navy test explosion off the coast of Florida that caused tremors like a small earthquake in South Florida last week could have also been a potential cause of the collapse.

The Navy put out a statement saying that on June 18 it conducted the first of several planned so-called Full Ship Shock Trials, FSSTs, in the coming months off the coast. The USS Gerald R. Ford was about 100 miles from Ponce Inlet in Volusia County when a 40,000 pound explosive was set off right next to it. Video provided from the Navy on Twitter shows the ship, and then and a cloud balloon in the water.

Ponce Inlet is about 250 miles north of Surfside.

“(Investigators) are going to check it out,” Aghayere said, noting most buildings in Florida are not designed to withstand earthquakes.”
